Vaulted Ceiling Recipe for Mold?
Customer wants T&G pine car siding as paneling on their vaulted ceiling…no drywall, just R-38 kraft-faced FG batts. FG is installed OK, but there are a few places where gaps in the insulation will bring cold air directly to the back of the pine paneling.
I assume, In most places, the lack of DW would be a code violation…this is a rural MN location with no inspections.
Would you be concerned that this will lead to condensation and mold? Anyone ever put paneling directly over FG w/o drywall?
The backsides of the boards would primed.
No big deal? or No thanks?
